Navin,
Looks good. But i have a question that the OE type spoiler does the job of keeping the force down at high speeds? This is the only thing holding me back everytime i think of ordering one. Can anyone clear this for me please?

spoilers help only at very high speeds like over 150-200kmph. below that it dosent make a difference whether you have a spoiler or not.

Hi guys, I got the car fitted with the spoiler yesterday. I have taken pics while they were fixing it step by step. Will try to post them tomorrow. The car looks sporty with the spoilers and i was very much satisfied with the finish.

Where did you purchased it and how much it costed?

A friend of mine bought a spoiler (meant for Lancer) & fitted into his OHC. This was purchased from Pudhupet, Chennai. Could not find out what the material. He got and painted it to the cars color from a local workshop. Net cost including all is Rs.1000/-

As for the rims The black ones like the ones photoshopped will look really good on your car.

Got it from Cosmo fibers. It cost me 3700 INR for the spoiler including the paint job and brake light. This is a mod shop near central staiton owned by a guy named ravi..

The one that you mentioned sounds much cheaper. If it is from pudupet, s it a used/refurbished one or new? Try to post some pics so we can have a look at the finish. How much for the OHC Type II's ?

Kutlee : Lets wait for surprise to post the pics. If it is good enough then we can go for that also. It should stay strong in the long run otherwise it will start to rattle.

yeah.. now waiting for your bodykit and rims. IMO you should get the rims before the bodykit.

navin now that everyone has helped you in getting a spoiler that too after five pages (no offence buddy)
i suggest you get some nice rims in hyper black or gun metal finish (15` or if you wanna go crazy ..16`)
and skirts (the car one`s) all around or a simple body kit.


cheers
